It has been another beautiful day. Today’s high was in the lower 70’s and tolerable. I’ve been using the grill for fixing dinner the past two days. They have been wonderful and very tasty.
Last night’s dinner was hamburgers (ground sirloin with a pat of Italian seasoned butter inside), that wonderful spinach with sautéed almonds, raisins and ginger; and rice cooked in beef broth with onions. Everybody raved about their food. My husband said that the spinach should be served at those outrageously priced restaurants and the hamburger was the best he’d ever eaten. That makes working all that hard worthwhile. Actually, it wasn’t that hard of work, but my feet were killing me so it just seemed like it was hard work.
For dinner tonight I grilled New York steaks and served them with a pat of herbed butter. Ghee would have worked well, too, but I didn’t have any available. I also grilled lightly oiled (olive oil) crimini mushrooms, onions, and garlic together and added some cilantro, rosemary, thyme, and oregano for seasoning. Earlier I made a shredded salad of broccoli stems and carrots with raisins. To finish off dinner, I grilled several tomato halves with some herbs and then added about a teaspoon of parmesan cheese.
Tomorrow I will transplant some of the vegetables I started about a month ago. My husband got the ground ready today. I sure couldn’t do the planting without his help. Some plants will be repotted into larger containers to finish growing, but most will be in the prepared soil because the area he prepared for me is bigger than I expected. I plan of getting everything into the ground over the next few days.
The Siberian tomatoes will go into the garden. They have grown tremendously and already have tomatoes growing on them. There are two deep holes in the garden waiting for them. My other tomato plants are also growing rapidly, but will stay in the solarium because they need warmer temperatures than the Siberian require.
I will also be planning seeds tomorrow, including peas. They will be planted right next to the Siberians. The forecast is calling for lows in the mid-30’s for the next two nights. Hopefully everything will do okay. They should be fine so long as the ground has adequate moisture and the sunlight warms the soil well during the day. The garden plot is also in a very protected spot just outside the solarium.
Sitting on the glider swing tonight was so peaceful. The swallows had just started hunting for bugs and mosquitoes. A robin was singing. Our roosters were crowing. Everything seemed to be in harmony. The temperature dropped into the 60’s so after a bit, I came inside to write to you.
So, till next time…
